Fitness Friday: An honest conversation about my body
I have just come back from a week away on the Nofolk Broads with my parents and my girlfriend.
I definitely made the most of all the snacks on offer and eating what I wanted when I wanted and very limited exercise.
I had also suspended my gym membership just before I went away, well a few weeks before we went away. I haven’t yet been back to the gym and if I am completely honest probably won’t until after we cme back from Poland.
The end result of this? I am currently the heaviest weight I have been over the last 5 years. I have to say that I don’t think the trip to Norfolk is entirely to blame as I had let my healthier choices go a while before we went away and the choices I made whilst we were away definitely didn’t help.
Am I happy about it? No, not at all. I feel as though I have un done all of the work I did over the last 18 months and you can definitely tell that I have put on weight looking at my face and my stomach.
I also think that this has also had an impact upon my mental health as I don’t feel comfortable with how I look at the moment.
What am I going to do about it? I think the first step is this blog post, and being honest about how I feel with how I look and my weight at the moment. Acknowledging that it is bringing me down.
The positive is that I can do something about it, I know (as I already have done) that I can lose the weight I have put on and I can become healthier than I am at the moment.
